Deputy knew police were linked to Native teen's death
Wednesday, March 2, 2005

The deputy police chief in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, knew two officers were suspects in the disappearance and subsequent death of a Native teenager in 1990, the chief testified on Tuesday.

Chief Russell Sabo said he personally told deputy Dan Wiks that two officers were linked to the case of Neil Stonechild, a 17-year-old Cree teen who was found frozen to death on the outskirts of town. Yet Wiks told the media that police were not suspected of being involved.

Wiks later admitted in the official inquiry into Stonechild's death that he misled the public. The inquiry found that marks on the teen's body were "likely" caused by police handcuffs.
